A NEW YORK STATE OF MIND
|WASHINGTON, DC – The DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans would like to congratulate the New York State Chapter and its coalition in bringing marriage equality to the empire state of New York. “Welcome to the family!” said DC Log Cabin President Robert Turner II. “We are ecstatic to add New York to the growing list of places where one is free to marry the person they love, regardless of gender,” he continued.
With last week’s passage of the marriage bill, and their governor’s prompt signage into law, in less than 30 days New York will join the District of Columbia and five other states that honor marriage equality.
In addition to the excellent job done by our sister organization, DC Log Cabin is extremely grateful and proud of State Senators Jim Alesi, Roy McDonald, Mark Grisanti and Stephen Saland who voted on the right side of history. As stated by others, this achievement marks the first time a Republican-led legislative chamber has enacted marriage equality. “We are indeed changing hearts and minds one at a time,” concluded Turner.
Log Cabin Republicans is a national organization started in 1977 that believe in low taxes, limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. The DC Chapter holds monthly meetings, supports local Republican candidates and sponsors monthly social gatherings. For more information, please visit www.dclogcabin.org.
